Out of the Brain and Into the Heart:
Energizing Your Buddhist Practice
Saturdays from 2:00-4:00 pm in Aug-Oct 2008
A series of classes with Ven. Connie Miller
The power of Buddhism lies in the heart. By discovering how to put the teachings into practice, and integrating them with our everyday experiences, we can use this wisdom to transform our lives. Buddhist practice needs energy, enthusiasm, and "juice"!
In this series, we explore how to energize our daily spiritual practice. The classes offer the opportunity to explore the basic practices of listening, contemplating, and meditating on the Buddhist path. We investigate the meaning of "ritual" and how to bring it alive every day. We will investigate how to make use of the seven branches of regular practice by means of practical methods to accumulate wholesome inner skills and resources and purify our unwholesome karmic imprints. Transformation means changing our habits: We explore various techniques and methods that help us deal with our habitually afflicted states of mind through the skillful application of the Buddhist view in our daily life. These teachings include direct practice of meditation on the Lam Rim.
